But the villainous Robespierre (Henry Oscar) and his henchman are determined to get hold of Blakeney any way they can and lop off his head from crimes against France.
They lure him to France by kidnapping his wife, a French aristocrat, and sentencing her to death, knowing that Blakeney and his gang will be forced to come to her rescue.
